21 Humans Who Make Being Human Look Really, Really Hard

The Great Cage Potato UFC 93 Pick-em Contest


(You’re never too old for toys. Courtesy of the good people at Round 5.)

Okay, we’ve heard just about enough from you people about how great you are at predicting fight outcomes.  It’s time to step up and put the reputation of your assumed internet identity where your mouth is, and maybe even take home a sweet prize in the process.  Here’s how:

First, head on over to this thread in our (free/easy-to-use/totally awesome) Cage Potato forums.  Then make your picks for each of the ten scheduled bouts at UFC 93.  For each fight pick the winner, round, and method (note: please choose from submission, TKO, or decision. No need to specify type of submission, of differentiate between TKO and KO, but simply saying "Henderson by ownage, R1" will earn you nothing more than the disdainful mockery of your peers).

Each correct pick is worth one point, though you’re only eligible to receive points for round and method if you get the winner right.  Just to safeguard against the dreaded tie, also answer this tie-breaker question: what will be the ending time of the night’s fastest finish? (the closest without going over gets it)

And what do you stand to gain from this contest, other than mad respect?  We’re glad you asked…

First-place winner will receive series 2 of the Round 5 MMA figurines, which includes Wanderlei Silva, Anderson Silva, Rich Franklin, and Sean Sherk.

The top three runners-up will receive Cage Potato’s Hall of Fame t-shirts.

Everyone else?  You get nothing but heartache and a lingering sense of failure.

Post your entry no later than noon EST on Saturday, Jan. 17.  Entries posted at 12:01 are shit out of luck, so get them in early just to be sure.

intriguing prizes...my bratz dolls could use some more viable man plastic for their dating show, however this does not bode well for Destro and Lion-O!

just a reminder from your man Kimbo...

Tapping is for bitches...much better to go out on the end of a stiff jab

Those toys don't even closely resemble the real fighters, only maybe Anderson Silva does a little. I wanted to buy some of them but they all look like shit, just ripped little Gi-joes with mma gloves. Guys like Franklin and Wand have very distinctive looks and the toys look nothing like that.

I am a complete moron, but at least i can follow instructions...
Surfin Dave- January 12, 2009 at 9:52 am
If I was a Photoshop wiz, here's how I'd chop up the toys:

Sherk: Add a needle to one hand and have him stabbing it in his other arm.
Franklin: Put him on his knees, hands together pleading to Anderson Silva to not hurt him anymore.
Wanderlei: Just put him flat on his back.
Anderson: Have one hand out-stretched in a gesture to help his opponent get up.

Surfin Dave- January 12, 2009 at 9:47 am
